JustHost is a fast growing hosting company under management of JustDevelopIt. JustHost has quickly grown into one of the big names in hosting industry in a very short time. From what I observed, the hosting company is best for shoppers looking for budget and blog hosting.
Learn more about JustHost on the FAQ section below. Alternatively, you can read my personal opinion on their hosting service at JustHost Review.
What types of hosting service do JustHost offer?
JustHost offers two shared hosting plans – JustPlan and JustPlan Premium. Both hosting plans offer unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email accounts as well as every other feature you expect from a professional web hosting company; the differences between these two package are the price and the number of free domain. For JustPlan Premium, monthly price is $8.95/mo, users get 3 free domains for life; while for JustPlan, monthly price is $3.95/mo, users get 1 free domain for life.
Which JustHost plan is better – JustPlan or JustPlan Premium?
JustPlan is apparently the better hosting plan. You pay extra $60 annually just for 2 free domains – which is rather foolish as domain registration normally cost $10 annually (per domain).
How long does JustHost trial period last?

Yes, prices do change when you subscribe to a longer (or shorter) period. In summary:
